Over Modulation

From Chace Audio

Over Modulation occurs when a signal, (be it from an acoustic source, such as sound recorded into a microphone, or an electronic signal passing through a console), is too loud for its intended target to handle. When this happens, the microphone or recording electronics' acceptable operating levels are exceeded, and the result is distortion.
